Young guns who fire the imagination

14 January 2013Written by ATG Reporter

Young people making their way in the art and antiques business will be the main focus of this year’s ‘National Antiques Week’ (April 20-28).

The event will culminate in the presentation of The Young Guns of the Antiques Trade Award followed by a celebration party at the Decorative Antiques and Textiles Fair in Battersea on April 25. 

Entries are invited from Young Guns between the ages of 15 and 39 who can demonstrate a real and heartfelt commitment to the industry with the confidence to encourage other young people to join the trade and visit antique shops.

It is simple to enter online at  www.nationalantiquesweek.co.uk. The judges are looking for the most endearing and inspiring story.

Entries must be in by January 31.

The winner and two runners-up will receive an impressive package of prizes and there will be a chance for all entrants to display items for sale in the foyer of the Decorative Fair as part of an exhibition -  Young Guns, The Future of the Antiques Trade, curated by Mark Hill.
